Friday Farm Fotos: Summer Evening

It's a warm summer evening around the farm....

Lily is tired of being inside all day and is on the move.

"You talking about me again?"

The time for cleaning out the fence row is after the sun goes down.

Instead of picking grass, the sheep are enjoying their fan before it's turned off for the night. 

Big Bird has been going to bed early since her partner in crime, Sarge, is no longer here to keep her out late chasing bugs.....

Lily wants to take a ride on the 4-wheeler.

Across the ridge you can almost see the humidity in the air.

79 degrees at sunset- a little cooler than last night's 86.
I think I'll grab a jacket.

Across the road someone's dogs are barking... probably at deer.

The moon slowly appears as the sun disappears....

And the barn light that comes on automatically at dark means it's time to call it a day.

Goodnight, world....

Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Pretty post. Lily is such a cute girl!

  2. Ahhh. Nothing like some nice TN scenery.
    Higgins pesters me to ride on the lawnmower when I let him stay out while I'm cutting. But, when I pick him up and take off he has a fit wanting down. Just like a kid. ;)
    Thanks for the pics of my homeland.

  3. Now I see some grassy hills I would love to roll down, think Miss Lily would join me?

    You have such a lovely peaceful place.

  4. You live in such a beautiful place! Sigh. And those cool temps make me want to pack up and come to that dreamy spot pronto! Summer evenings are the best. I'm gonna miss them when they are gone, 100+ degrees and all.

  5. Paula, your place is so beautiful and lush and green. Texas is having the worst drought in recorded history right now. We had a temp of 101 at nearly 10 p.m. People are having to sell their livestock - there is no hay and if you can find some it's higher'n a cat's back. We need prayers for rain badly. We need a hurricane but don't want any folks in danger or their property damaged. It's gonna take ALOT of rain to get us back where we're supposed to be. Don't know if one hurricane is gonna do it!

    Whine. OK, I'm done now. Lily needs a ride on the 4-wheeler!

  6. its is so pretty and green....peaceful too...still sorry about Sarge going into the big hen house in the sky....but she went out fighting at least.....Lily must love it there, she looks really happy....

  7. As usual, you gave us a lovely tour. You are right it's so humid. I've given up on my hair till winter! That Lily likes the four-wheeler? Must like the wind in her hair. She's a cutie pie.

  8. Beautiful! Hope you got to ride the 4 wheeler Lily or did you help pops?
    Benny & Lily

  9. lovely post. a feeling of peace and 'all is right with the world.' :)

  10. oh, and i like your sweet and simple header.

  11. Ha ha! I love Lily in the second picture. She really does look like "Are you talking about me?" hee hee.

    I love the summer evening photos. And I'm jealous of your cool temperatures!!

  12. Thanks for taking me on a tour of your farm!

    Is that new fabric on your home page? It looks familiar :) By the way, Connecting Threads has a good sale now on thread and some clearance fabrics.

  13. I am envious of your green, rolling hills. It's getting brown and crispy here...
    Lily does look like she would enjoy some of that 4 wheeling! We all like a soft breeze in our face, don't we?

  14. Sweet photos, especially of Lily! I also envy all the green grass. It is horribly dry in South Texas. Most grass is brown and crispy! Fall can't come fast enough!

  15. Hi Paula, I always love the views around your lovely home. Lily is a baby doll! Hope you will have a nice weekend. Love ya, Mildred

  16. Loved the pictures, it looks so peaceful there...Did you give Miss Lily her ride? ))smiles))

  17. Great pictures again, Paula. You have gorgeous views. Thank you for sharing with us. Have a nice weekend.

  18. What a wonderful evening - all I needed was a big cold glass of sweet tea and a little time on your porch!

  19. It's been hot and hazy here too. Muggy. I'm sorry about Sarge. Lily is growing!! I love her smiles.
    Have a good weekend
    Patty H.

  20. Lovely story in pictures and word. I can almost feel the heavy air. Another great post!

  21. Poor Big Bird...I know Sarge is missed. Your pictures are absolutely beautiful. I always thoroughly enjoy getting to visit your beautiful farm.

    Thanks for sharing the goodness and the rough times and the moments to always treasure!


  22. Enjoyed your pictures. Would love for you to link up to my farm photo Friday linky party. Oh and so sorry to hear about Sarge...farmlife is hard sometimes. Stop by and say hi.

  23. Paula,
    I loved the tour of your farm. The photos are so pretty of the animals, the land, and Lily. I would love to live on a farm. You have such a pretty place. It looks so peaceful.

  24. How could you resist Lily's face when she asks for a ride? I couldn't! Loved the post and the sweet good night! ;D

  25. I love these posts. They make me sigh. *sigh* :)
